Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs

So, who likes dinosaurs?

What, all of you?  Well, of course.  I mean, who doesn't like dinosaurs!

I fell in love with them as a kid, on my first visit to the Museum of Natural History in New York City.  I had a great collection of toy dinosaurs back then (long since lost, alas -- unlike my spacemen, who I hung onto).  I used to make them fight my toy knights.   I never thought to write up those adventures, however (I did write up stories about the space pirates, however -- also lost, alack alas).

My friend Vic Milan was smarter.  His new novel, THE DINOSAUR LORDS, will be out next June.  First of a trilogy.  It's got dinosaurs, and it's got knights.  What more can you ask?  (And why the hell didn't I think of it first??)  For those of you who don't know him, Victor Milan has been one of my Wild Cards mainstays since the very beginning, back in 1987, the creator of Cap'n Trips, the Harlem Hammer, Mackie Messer. and more.   THE DINOSAUR LORDS is his best book yet... and damn, but Tor gave him a KICKASS cover:


Be sure and check out DINOSAUR LORDS when it hits the shelves in June... or better yet, pre-order.

And speaking of dinosaurs, a couple of other friends also have a cool dinosaur Kickstarter going.  Tess Kissinger and Bob Walters , old friends from Philadelphia, have a great dinosaur book out as well.


Bob Walters has been one of the world's leading dinosaur artists for decades, and the book is full of his gorgeous art.

(No knights, though).

And he and Tess have a new dream as well:  THE DINOSAUR CHANNEL.

But I will let them tell you all about it themselves, on their Kickstarter page:

Cool cause, and some cool incentives as well.  Check it out.

Oh no....
Now I have to set fire to the dinosaurs in medieval England novel I've been working on for five years.

Re: Oh no....
No you don't. If you truly didn't know such a thing existed, then it's fine. Don't give up, cause your story might actually end up being much better than the one George posted. Keep writing mate!

Re: Oh no....
No, please don't! I'd also like to read it if you intend to publish! :) (So count us as some pre-sale fans that eagerly await your work).

Re: Oh no....
Agree with the other people before me GeekFurious. Its not like Martin stopped writing ASOIAF because there already was a fantasy world set with dragons and undead things. The fantasy genre is loaded right now, and above all else, good writing still is hopefully rewarded. I'm also sure that there will be many differences between the two
